WILLOW Star Christian Slater Comments On Possibly Joining MCU Following Recent SPIDER-MAN 4 Rumors (Exclusive)

Talking to us about his memorable cameo role in Willow, Christian Slater responds to rumours that he's being eyed for a role in Spider-Man 4, expressing his love of both superhero projects and Star Wars.

Interviews Opinion

All eight episodes of Willow are now streaming on Disney+, and the all-new sequel series, based on George Lucas' 1988 fantasy-adventure movie of the same name, has been a hit with fans.

In the sixth episode, Christian Slater made his long-awaited cameo as Allagash, a character we soon learn was once one of Madmartigan's closest allies. You can read our full interview with the actor here, but during our conversation on Zoom, we brought up some recent rumours that the Mr. Robot star is being eyed for a role in Spider-Man 4.

We didn't share that here because it came from an unreliable source, though even a broken clock is right twice a day! Regardless, Slater looked visibly confused when we mentioned the report, but did respond positively after we asked whether he's open to joining a superhero project. 

"I do like superhero movies. Look, I’m a huge fan of Robert Downey Jr., really. I feel like, whenever I think of Marvel, I only think about Robert Downey Jr. He’s the guy who I feel started this whole journey. Him and Jon Favreau. I got to see Jon at D23 and we had a nice discussion and conversation about things he’s worked on and I was able to let him know what a fan I am of the Star Wars Universe."

"Gosh, I love Andor. Andor was amazing. Did you enjoy it? It was great and I really got wrapped up in it. That had elements of my Star Wars from 1977 when I was a kid. It just had so much of that," the actor continued. "It’s hard to capture that lightning and recreate that sort of energy, and that’s why it’s important to have people involved who were alive at that particular time."

Based on these remarks, we'd say it's more likely that Slater heads into a Galaxy Far, Far Away than the MCU, though he has previously lent his voice to Deadshot in the DC Animated Universe. The actor is always a fantastic addition to any movie or TV show, of course, and if he is being eyed for Spider-Man 4, he'd make one heckuva Hobgoblin, don't you think? 

Only time will tell, but in the meantime, we'd strongly recommend checking out his turn as Allagash in Willow because it's clear Slater is having an absolute blast in that fantasy world.

All episodes of Willow are now streaming on Disney+.
